    In case anyone had wondered. This pen PN556W while recognized by Windows 10 as a pen, dell "in their infinite" wisdom decided to only enable this pen for the Dell Venue 8 Pro (2015 edition).

    Since I don't know how to hack INF installer files, perhaps some brave soul could figure out how to bypass the "supported tablet not found message".

    Apparently the limitation in supporting the Dell Venue 11 Pro's ( which have BT 4.0 LE, like the 7130, 7139, 7140) would be to add/modify the appropriate entries in the installer data files?

    Older Dell tablets use a Synaptics digitizer, new tablets use Wacom AES, two totally different hardware technologies, no hacking will ever work to get the new pens working on older devices.
